Mr. and Mrs. North was a successful program that aired from 1952 to 1954. The intellectual property was developed from a radio program which had been previously spun off to create a series of plays.

This is a very interesting show for several reasons, but the most striking is the progressive depiction of women : where other shows of the period were portraying woman as childlike or mischievous, Mrs. North is a brilliant amateur detective who drives much of plot with her insights. While some of the innate sexism of the time is detectible from this work, it's certainly less prevalent than in other shows of the period, such as 'My Life With Elizabeth'.

The episode structure is familiar to many modern viewers ; 'Murder She Wrote', 'Hart to Hart' (which was based directly on this property) and modern CSI programs are based on a similar format. Every week the Norths encounter another crime and solve it. Though the frequency that the couple encounters foul play stretches believability a little bit, it's easy enough to suspend belief.

This particular episode fixates on the ugly murder of a horse jockey, who is discovered mostly-burned. As many mysteries of this type do, it has several twists and turns, but wraps up fairly quicky... the 25 minute format might be jarring to modern viewers more used to hourlong crime dramas.

I found this episode to be enjoyable and the plotline engaging. Dated though it might be, it was worth a watch. Much of the remainder of the series has the same good quality, for those curious.

Barbara Britton not was beautiful and fun to watch but she represented beauty products for the average woman. This episode moves right along with great character actors keeping us entertained. Richard Denning looks quite comfortable in his role.

How long has that chicken been sitting in the back seat of a closed car? And she's still going to cook it for dinner? And what's with Mr. North being such a cad that he makes his wife go to the garage to get the groceries out of the car? And then when he rushes in because she took so long and he was worried - first he stopped to tighten his tie and put on and button a suit jacket complete with neatly folded hankie (he was in his shirt sleeves with a loose tie when he sent her to the garage for the groceries).
